Gills boss reacts following 1-1 draw in Shropshire.

Steve Evans felt the performance of his Gills side deserved a lot more following the 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury at the Montgomery Waters Meadow on Tuesday evening.

Stuart O'Keefe's penalty put the visitors in front, but Omar Beckles drew the hosts level in the second period.

Speaking after the game, Steve said: “The performance was very good for large spells. I don’t think there’s any dispute we should win the game. We’ve got a penalty which is a penalty, we’ve two other penalties that weren’t given, we make an individual mistake for the goal, but that happens.

“We had enough good possession and good opportunities, especially in that first period, to win tonight so we go away disappointed.

“It’s individual errors rather than team errors. I thought a lot of our play was good tonight, we caused them a lot of problems, if we get a fair rub of the green we probably go 3-0 ahead at half time. But not to be, so we’ll go home in the middle of the night, and we’ll be back on our travels on Saturday to go to Accrington."

Regan Charles-Cook was brought down just outside the box in the second half which saw the offending player given a yellow card, leaving the Gills boss to ponder whether further punishment was necessary.

He added: “I’ve seen my player go through on goal, I’ve seen someone foul him, the referee cautions him. It’s last man rule if he’s outside the box.

"It should have been three points. The boys know that."
